If you do end up in Folkestone around 7-8pm ish then you are more than welcome to join us for food :th:

You have my number anyway mate :)
Cheers Vinny, but we won't be leaving Rugby until that time. Or later.

Trust everything went well with the refit and you're good to go.

It's all back together, washed and polished but un tested really. Today's drive will be it's test lol. We've got tools and a few spares just in case :th:

Shame you can't make it mate. Have a good one tho :)

What a carrry on getting home should have got the 10.20pm train back and found out when we got there another train had got stuck inside the tunnel expected departure time 03.15am :ranting1: As it happens we got back to the UK at 12.50 am so wasn't that bad now this is where the fun begins gets on to the M25 about 7 miles for my junction to the A3 traffic slows down and we grind to a halt both sides of the Motorwy has been closed of due to some woman trying to comit suicide by jumping of the bridge :rolleyes: .Eventually got home at 04.40am couldn't sleep so now doubt going to feel like crap for the rest of the day.
On a positive side best France trip to date :th: congrats to Steve and Tara for getting us to our destinations,you did a cracking job Tara navigating :th:,and to all involved in planning the trip.Good job Vin in getting the T-Shirts made they were ace.Nice to meet some new faces had some really good laughs never had a chance to take any photographs to busy driving and chatting to people but no doubt Dan (Trouble) will be posting quite a few.All i can say is roll on to the next one :)

Got home and in bed for around 3.30am!

An Amazing Weekend! I would probably do it again tbh :th:
I think from everything this weekend, the thing im most impressed with is Tara's navigating! :clapping:
And the T-shirts from Vin were really good too! I wasn't expecting good quality tbh for £10.
Im definatly glad WWM suggested the ferry route too, If we'd have come back through folkestone with that delay, it'd been 5/6am before we got home! :whistling:

I'll upload all our pics when im next at shel's!

Merci, au revoir
